I've loved tech writing from the time I first heard the words technical and writertogether. These days I bring technical and writertogether in my job title at Amazon Web Services (AWS), where I get to learn and write about cloud computing. In 2013, I fulfilled a dream by writing my book Word Up! How to Write Powerful Sentences and Paragraphs (And Everything You Build from Them). Two years later, my pocket-sized collection came out: You Can Say That Again: 750 Redundant Phrases to Think Twice About. Occasionally I post on my own blog at Writing.Rocks. I live in Portland, Oregon, where I make things with scrumptious yarn, do New York Times crossword puzzles with my husband (especially the Thursday and Sunday puzzles), and lure in family and friends to play Wingspan and other games.
